Recently, my in laws went out of town to visit some family. They went to visit the mother-in-laws side so my father in law(FIL) was out numbered with a household full of woman. The only other person who was a guy was a 7 year old. Well, that 7 year old is all into his wii system, from what they tell me he has every game. Well, my father in law pretty much hung out and watched him play games on the wii. You know the saying, "if you can't beat him, join him!" So now my FIL is all into it. It's kind of funny. He just had a birthday about a month ago and requested he didn't want shoes or shirts...he wanted the Wii system!!! I thought that was funny. After buying the system, an extra controller, and games, he spent about $300, I think. We bought him two games as well.
I asked my wife, "when does he have time to play?" You see my FIL runs two business' and is very hands on and constantly busy. So I couldn't image him having time to play. My wife tells me he plays at 6 am and plays for an hour and a half. All his employees get in at about 7-7:30 and the phone starts ringing off the hook. He gets up early just to play before the phones start. I thought that was funny because he's an older guy and into it.
So my wife's dad is a gamer. Does anyone here have parents that play too?
